Not just for the chickens, but seeing the grand-kids enjoy them ...

A friend started me on this, and I decided to *dangit, do it* !
So after months of lurking on the net, I decided to make my own instead of buying a chicken abode.
Had a great time doing it with one of our 5 year old grand-sons *helping* me.
Pic of *about* what it looks like in the coop pictures section.

I am in Utah, so I am a bit concerned about the winter creeping up on us.
I already (home-made again) made a water supply warmer, in case of sub freezing temps.

When the chickens laid their first egg(s), that same friend who started me on this,
took his calculator out and after asking me how many potatoes,
I already forked over in behalf of the chickens,
he kindly told me that my first free egg,
will be laid when the chickens are done with laying eggs ...
Nice friend huh ... ?

Please take this last previous paragraph with a bag of salt, a grain does not suffice !

Sounds more like loan shark shakedown than a friend. Call his bluff, tell him to take the chickens back. You can get others - really, and your grand children will enjoy them just as much.

<<<My DH tells me our egg value is now over $100 per egg, well worth it!>>>

I agree, but how much are the smiles on the faces of our grand-kids worth ?

Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. Raising chickens is a wonderful experience for children. My granddaughter (pictured in my avatar) loves our chickens. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. What kind of chickens do you have?
